Provides a convenient way of carrying heavy plastic bags or any sheet material without the typical problem of “mangled hands”. Use it to replace lost/worn luggage handles etc….
PVC 1” diameter ,3 " length
Pipe insulating Foam
Then you need to cut the tube and the pipe (I made mine @ the TechShop)
All it is , is a PVC pipe cut open from 90º -180º ( or in half) with a piece of foam glued around it (see above )
I cut the foam with an extra inch in length more than the PVC.
Cut some foam off lengthwise so the bags or sheet material slide in easily ,then just glue them together
If you want something more durable you can try dipping it in the rubber coating compound used for refurbing tool handles.
The material in the center will grind off after a while . I tried covering with cloth and using hotmelt glue to hold inplace . I seems comfortable but looks like broken pieces of furniture .Ok they're functional but ugly - fugly ...
Remember to test the rubber compound first, put a drop on the foam and make sure it doesn’t melt, there’s a million different foam and coating formulas.
Do yourself a favor make a bunch you’ll leave them at the job site ….break them trying to set a pane glass etc … or leave them in the shopping cart ….
